Headword: Ἱεροβοάμ
Adler number: iota,172
Translated headword: Jeroboam
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Brother of Gideon, had a great many wives, from whom he begot 70 sons and one from a concubine.[1]
[Note] that Jonathan going up into Garizin (which is translated as "holy mountain") by telling a parable revealed in advance the hatred that was going to occur with both Abimilech and his followers.[2]
[Note] that when Jeroboam conjectured that if the people went up into Jerusalem to worship, he would turn them from rebellion to the lineage of David by setting up two golden heifers, the one in Bethel and the other in the tribe of Dan, he commanded them to regard these as gods, who led their fathers out of the land of Egypt; and there he demanded that they worship avoiding Jerusalem, with the pretext of the great journey, and he established priests as it happened, for he drove the Levites out to Jerusalem, and arranged the same feasts as in the Temple. And the people being easily corruptible followed him not unwillingly.[3]
Greek Original:
Ἱεροβοάμ, ἀδελφὸς Γεδεών, πλείστας εἶχε γυναῖκας, ἐξ ὧν υἱοὺς ο# πεποίητο καὶ ἕνα ἐκ παλλακῆς. ὅτι Ἰωνάθαν εἰς Γαριζὶν ἀνελθὼν [ὅπερ ἅγιον ὄρος ἑρμηνεύεται] μῦθόν τινα διηγησάμενος προεδήλωσε τοῦ τε Ἀβιμέλεχ καὶ τῶν ὑπηκόων τὴν μέλλουσαν ἔχθραν ἀποβήσεσθαι. ὅτι Ἱεροβοὰμ ὑπονοήσας, εἰ ἀνέρχοιτο ὁ λαὸς εἰς Ἱερουσαλὴμ προσκυνήσων, ἐπιστρέψειν αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ τῆς ἀποστασίας ἐπὶ τὸ Δαβὶδ γένος, δαμάλεις δύο χρυσᾶς, τὴν μὲν ἐν Βεθήλ, τὴν δὲ ἐν φυλῇ Δὰν ἀναθείς, ἐκέλευε τούτους ἡγεῖσθαι θεούς, οἳ ἐξήγαγον τοὺς πατέρας ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου: κἀνταῦθα προσκυνεῖν ἐδικαίου παραιτουμένους Ἱερουσαλήμ, προφάσει πορείας τῆς πολλῆς: ἱερεῖς τε ὡς ἔτυχεν ἐπέστησε: τοὺς γὰρ Λευίτας ἐξέωσεν εἰς Ἱερουσαλήμ, ἑορτὰς δὲ τὰς αὐτὰς ἔταξε ταῖς ἐν τῷ ναῷ. καὶ ὁ λαὸς εὐδιάφθορος ὢν ἐξηκολούθησεν οὐκ ἄκων.
